Established in 2011, Ananda Intellectual Property has taken the Thai IP market by storm. Lauded for its client-first approach, litigation strength and practical IP protection strategies, the practice has experienced explosive growth in the past few years. Numerous household brands across the automotive, pharmaceutical, personal care and precision instrument fields seek out its services. Multilingual founder Franck Fougere is widely considered to be one of the leading IP specialists in the region. His all-rounder skills allow him to supervise patent portfolios and handle contentious matters, particularly those relating to China and to countries in the ASEAN network, including Thailand. Further, European governments often seek his counsel in IP matters. Throughout his illustrious career, he has prosecuted patents for several high-profile multinationals, including Kubota and Unicharm. In litigation, Fougere is often joined by senior litigator Nuttakorn Sorakun, who led the team to victory in the landmark patent invalidation case Nitto Denko Corp v Hutchinson Technology Inc in 2019. Although patents are his forte, Sorakun also has extensive expertise in contentious matters relating to cybercrime and corporate and commercial law.
